happy birthday, blog!



the very first picture i posted on my blog one year ago was this one. the idea of building up a daily (or mostly daily) stratum of materials, inspirations, ideas, and observations has turned into something that really does work for me as a kind of rich and crumbly humus for my life. it's so satisfying and lovely, all the connections it's helped me make to other distant bloggers who have supplied me with so many eggshells and orange rinds and bits of straw and torn petals and soft fragrant grasses. here's to another year, and another and another!

Sung in a breathy voice like a drag queen pretending to be Marylyn Monroe but has smoked so many cigarettes that she sounds more like a garbage disposal with a fork stuck in it:
